We have day trips happening most days of the summer from our sea kayaking Wilderness Retreat base camp on Spring Island.  We'll customize the perfect kayak day tour for you and your group, designed around your previous experience, interests, and abilities...and what the weather, sea conditions, and wildlife seem to be serving up!

These day trips begin and end with water taxi transportation from your accommodation in the nearby Village of Kyuquot.  This scenic boat ride often blasts through some of the same areas we'll explore at a more peaceful "connecting" pace by ocean touring kayak.  We provide all of the kayaking equipment, a delicious lunch, and professional kayak guides who aren't happy unless you're happy!  The day can begin with and include as much instruction - be it from square one or a refresher - to ensure your focus is less on the kayaking and more on the rich surroundings.  Our lunch stops allow time to stretch and explore fascinating places on shore.

Besides learning to kayak or refreshing old skills, highlights can include:

  • curious sea otters, sea lions, and the possibility of kayaking with whales, which can include humpback, grey, Minke and killer whales
  • tufted puffins, bald eagles, osprey & other marine birds
  • black bear viewing by kayak while they forage along the shoreline
  • inviting shell beaches on rocky islets laden with marine life in tide pools
  • giant Sitka spruce trees topped with the massive nests of bald eagles
  • historic and current village sites of the local First Nations people
  • some of the most spectacular surf-pounded shores off the West Coast of Canada
